For those of you who haven't read The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay (book), there is a character hatched up by the Protagonist named "The Escapist".
The Escapist main abilities are that he is a magician by trade, he has a golden key which is the source of most of his power (both his magical and physical power).
Now, I did a fairly shitty job explaining The Escapist, so if you are interested I recommend the book or Wiki'ing it.
TO THE POINT: Do you think that creating an Escapist Series would be a worthwile task? Furthermore, who would you like to see do it?
Neil Gaiman has my vote.
